Exmouth United Under-13s bagged themselves three excellent points as they defeated visiting Honiton 2-1.
The visitors were a well-organised side, but United looked confident from the first whistle and it was no more than they deserved when they took the lead.
Andy Maier did well to create space to rifle a shot towards goal that was blocked and, when the ball came back out to Max Hunt, he made no mistake. Honiton responded well and it needed some disciplined defending by the home side, in front of the confident handling of United glovesman Rossi McIntyre, to keep them at arm’s length until they did level things up with a powerful long-range strike.
United were soon back onto the front foot and a determined Lewis Tose fashioned himself a number of efforts on goal before drilling one into the back of the net. There was still first-half time left for, first, Luca Brind to fire a shot just wide and then Alex Quaife to see a shot go just over and United ended the half very much in the ascendancy. The second half did not produce any further goals, but that was not for the want of trying with a Jack McDonald-Brown free-kick and further near things from Lewis Tose and Michael Tapp seeing United so close to adding to their advantage.
It was not all one-way, though, and more sterling work from the defence and goalkeeper helped guide United to a deserved victory.
